Meet our new teachers! (18-19)

You do your best and let your teacher do the rest!!

At Ard Rí Community National School our teachers work using the most up-to-date and innovative teaching practices in order to provide high quality teaching and learning and ultimately- ‘Excellence in Education’ (Cornerstone of Community National School ethos).

This year we are delighted to announce Karen Dunne will be returning as a permanent member of staff. We also welcome Cailín Ní Dhonncha to the team. Niamh Donnachie taught at the school on a part-time basis last year and we are delighted Niamh will be teaching with us full-time this year.

The new teachers have been very busy preparing for the year ahead and are looking forward to meeting everyone and getting stuck-in to the busy school life at Ard Rí!

Fourth Class Teacher

My name is Múinteoir Karen. I will be teaching Fourth Class this year. I am very much looking forward to working with my new class. A lot of you will know me already from last year when I was teaching Senior Infants at Ard Rí. I coached Kickhams and I was involved in Soccer, Football and Athletics training last year also. I have been very busy preparing for teaching you this year. We will have lots of fun, be active and learn new things every day.

Second Class Teacher

Hi everyone. I am Múinteoir Niamh. I am thrilled to be teaching the children in Second Class this year. I got to know the school when I was working part-time here last year. My best memory was celebrating Holi with the community and I will be working hard to ensure the children in my class create more great memories this year.
